Hi all, my DH and I have been TTC for around a year (we thought we could put it off, apparently not). I am 43, one ovary (removed due to torsion at 15). My cycles have been regular 28-32 until basically the beginning of the year, I had a short cycle, 24 days in early April, though temping showed an O. I had a very long cycle the month after that, 50 days, and am currently on a 44 day cycle. With both of these last two cycles I've had ultra mild spotting (really just barely a pink wipe), on a day here and there in the middle. I am really hoping that this isn't menopause yet, I realize it could be perimenopause but I'm am extremely bummed at the prospect of this being "the end," especially considering I have no baby to show for it. I am looking for as many cases of successful pregnancy during confirmed perimenopause/meno as possible. I have been very depressed the last few days about it. We are in the process of getting health insurance, waiting to see if approved, so I can't see a doc just yet. I am ready to take the next steps towards "alternative methods," as I'm aware my chances with my aging eggs is poor. hmmm maybe I'm despondent because it's part of the peri game? Also, how quickly does this thing happen? So not fair that it happens so suddenly... I mean two months in a row grrr.
Thanks for any encouragment ladies!!
